From a complete stop, letting the ball bounce to him.. He ran back that TD -- 80 yards -- in 9.00 flat.
Most people lose speed after about 40-50 yards. Vann doesn't. He's got gamebreaking speed. You can't just half that into a 4.50 forty time. Accounting for lost speed, I'd say Vann runs somewhere between at least a 4.38 - 4.45 forty -- at least in games.
I'm glad you don't have other hobbies
but yeah, he definitely seems like one of those guys who has a faster "game speed" than a running speed.I can't wait to see how he looks in action against NFL caliber players.
Three and a half more months to go. Can I bear it?
.. I promised myself I'd take at least a month off before I start posting about next year's draft -- introducing players, etc...
All I have until June as far as sports where people are continually decked, smashed, and hit so hard they get flipped up in the air.. is hockey. Thankfully, we have a Bay Area team to be proud of that is still playing -- go San Jose Sharks.
